Design of the Chelsea Away Strip
It would be fair to say that the majority of Chelsea FC away jersey designs have been based around either a white or yellow colour scheme. These may be the most frequent away colours, but they are certainly not the only ones. Recently black and dark blue have made relatively frequent appearances in the line-up, and during the 1970’s and 1980’s the team wore some very bold away football kits.
Yellow, white, black, teal, red, grey and orange it seems that the Chelsea FC away shirt offers a rainbow of designs. This changeability makes the away jersey a fantastic choice for all passionate supporters. Why blend in with the crowd wearing classic royal blue when one of these superb alternatives is available. Below we list some of the most notable Chelsea away kits from the past:
- 1970’s – Several pillar box red designs
- 1986-89 – Jade green shirt
- 1990-92 – Red and white off-set diamond pattern
- 1994-96 – Grey & orange-commonly described as one of the worst ever football kits
- 2009-10 – black and blue horizontal stripes
Chelsea third kit
In recent years’ it has been commonplace for manufacturers to also release a third strip, this option is generally reserved for away domestic Cup and European fixtures, but does make occasional Premier League outings when there is a need to avoid a kit clash. Having this alternative option raises the opportunity of yet another colour scheme and variable designs. Most recently the Chelsea away and third soccer kits have alternated between white and black, but there is a varied past with some truly memorable shirts, examples include:
- 1974-75 – White with a red and green vertical stripe
- 1987-88 – White with blue pinstripe diamond pattern
- 1988-90 – Red white and blue horizontal stripes
- 1993-94 – Yellow and black vertical stripes
- 2017/18 – Black camouflage design
Why Buy Away or Third Jerseys?
With the changeable colour scheme, you may be wondering why you should deviate from buying the iconic royal blue home football shirt. The away and 3rd kits all include the infamous Chelsea FC crest, Nike and sponsor logos meaning that you will still be proudly showing off your team allegiance.
The other great reason, is that the away and third strip colours are generally used as inspiration for the design of the Chelsea training kit. Look at the newly launched tracksuit, jacket or training jersey and you will see design features that mimic those of the current away and third soccer strips.
